MMDE: Ed McMahon worked for Publishers Clearing House

Current: Ed McMahon worked for America Family Publishers

This one seems to be freaking many people out - even those who had heard of the Mandela Effect but dismissed it as some kind of false memory syndrome.

Do you remember Ed McMahon delivering PCH's oversized checks with his famous catch phrase and a bottle of champagne? If so, you are experiencing an MMDE, because he never did that. This is despite over 32,000 websites from a Google search which also associate him with PCH.

Current references show he worked for a rival - American Family Publishers - which did involve him visiting the houses of the lucky winners of their draws.

But PCH? Nope - he's their Shining star that never was.
